    This is a black eye for Samsung no doubt. You remember how Tom used to have to release a new video showing how to bypass factory reset protection on different devices and even on the same device running different versions of software? Yea Tom just found a YUUGE hole in Samsung's security. He has successfully found a universal FRP Bypass which works on ANY Samsung device including the Galaxy Note 7! This is borderline ridiculous. It makes you wonder why FRP even exists when it can be man handled by Rootjunky like this!

    As an update for those of you who don't know what I am talking about Factory Reset Protection is a security measure by Android that locks your phone down upon a factory reset. In order to unlock the device you need the previous google account information.

    He is definitely one amazing guy. Many people don't realize just how incredible his works are but this should give him some props.
